Does a Balance Transfer meet Sign up Spending Requirements??

Hi all,

 

Looking to transfer some balances of around $3,000 and wondering..if I sign up for a new card to do this that has a X points sign up bonus if I spend X amount in 3 months, will my BT count towards that spending requirement?

 

Also, anyone know of any NO FEE 0% balance transfers aside from Chase Slate?

It does not count towards new purchase spending requirements. 

 

NFCU had a 0% BT offer, but I believe it ended or is ending this week.

Ok, thanks.

 

I am thinking PenFed but I'm not a PenFed member...do I have to have a bank account there to get a credit card?

I wish I knew - but I'm not much of an expert with the military or other large credit unions - I don't qualify for membership in really anything, except probably DCU.
